Organic Keemun Black Tea Hao Ya B

7 reviews


Among the finest grades of Organic Keemun, this black tea has an earthy character with a smokey-honey sweetness. The dry leaf is clean, small, wiry and with abundant golden tips. It is excellent straight or with milk and sweetener. 

Organic Keemun black tea is made from the local cultivar 槠叶种 (Zhu-ye-zhong). It is this particular bush, and the terroir that gives Keemun black tea its distinctive flavor. Notably, many of the higher quality English Breakfast blends include Keemun as the primary tea.



   1 tsp to a 8 oz cup


   3-5 mins

Milk and sugar optional



Keemun black tea comes from Qimen county in Anhui province. (Keemun is the anglicized version of Qimen). It is relatively a newer black tea. As the story goes, it was formulated in 1875 by a civil servant who was seeking a new vocation after losing his job. He was following his father’s advice in learning a skill rather than depending on “precarious officialdom” for a living. Before Keemun black tea started to be manufactured, Anhui province only made green tea.

Keemun Hao Ya B

This is my absolute favorite tea from Happy Earth! I love the warm and toasty flavor, its notes of smokiness and honey sweetness, and its lovely, rich body. I really enjoy it either straight or with a little honey stirred in.

One of my favorites. A good solid black tea. Not bitter, good flavor. Especially with a little milk.

Keemun is smokin'

A wonderful smokey cup, rich, full, and perfect in this colder weather. Happy Earth has such a wide range of delights that it is continually tantalizing.

Keemun Hao Ya B, Organic Black Tea

Having fallen in love with all the black teas provided by Happy Earth Tea, this is no exception. As described, it is very earthy but still sweet with a touch of honey. It's like the best possible version of what you'd think of when you imagine a pretty standard black tea, but it's even better than that!

Thank you Alyssa for the review. Glad that you are enjoying the Keemun.

I LOVE the Keemun Hao Ya B tea! I have not saved it for a special occasion, instead treating myself nearly every morning to this lovely black tea. I will be back soon to get more!
